I’ve been frustrated with life recently. I’m unhappy with my weight. I’m unhappy with being alone.
It’s time to accept things. I need to not worry about being single. I’ve done it before. I can do it again.
I need to acknowledge my eating issues and work on them. I need to cook at home, give up the beer for a while, and do some exercises in the evening instead of sit at the bar drinking.
One thing will help me to achieve the “stay at home and cook” goal – I’m going to be broke for a few weeks. Poor planning and unexpected expenses teamed up to take my beer away. Maybe this is a good thing.
I have been riding. I’ve even been back on the rSogn. I still need to replace the handlebars with Albatross bars, but that’ll have to wait for finances.
Tim got a new bike. He calls it SeaFoam. We managed to get out for a ride both Saturday (foggy) and Sunday (Easter). I have a few pictures from Saturday.
If you can’t tell, SeaFoam is a Rivendell Atlantis. Tim always has the nicer bike.
A trip through Joe Creason Park in the fog completely hid the fact we were in an urban area.
I didn’t ride the bike to work on Monday or Tuesday. I took a cab (waste of money) to work. I took the bus home. Both days involved walking, and drinking at a bar (more money wasted).
Tuesday, I had a few beers after work, when Tim contacted me about an evening ride. I ran home and got ready. We met and rode 15 or so miles after dark. Again, I was on the rSogn, and he was on SeaFoam. Both of us with dyno-powered headlights.
As he headed for home, I stopped again for another beer.
See? This one was totally the bike’s fault!
It’ll be at least two weeks without beer now. I’ll then limit my drinking to one day a week.
In addition to spending more time at home with my dogs, I’m starting back with sand-court volleyball next Monday. This will hopefully give me enough social interaction (and some exercise!)
Life is an interesting journey. It’ll be fun to see where I end up by the end of the year.
One thought on “Acceptance”
you dont need to give up beer for awhile. you need to give up beer period
